Eventually, this new centered way of being becomes their “new normal”. Only if they get thrown off by a negative event  - a bad day at work, chemicals, a knock on the head - might they drop into the way they felt before. But generally, they will not dip as deeply into emotional discomfort and will more than likely bounce back from challenging situations much more quickly and easily. Who is it for?
